  • MINGTOWN Hiker International Youth Hostel says

    We're only a few minutes' walk from many attractive and famous tour sites. And out of these tour sites, I most recommend the Bund (Wai tan), once the symbol of Shanghai city in 20th century, which has many legends and has been the witness of the great change of this city. It still retains the charming appearance as it was in the early 1900s.
    I like to think that the Hiker is not just a place for accommodation but also a place that promises to never disappoint the travelers that come here from all over the world. We provide a safe, elegant and relaxed environment of hospitality for all. We're always ready to listen and we put guests at the heart of everything we do!

    I was in Shanghai visiting some old friends while I stayed in Mingtown Hiker. The location is good. I was there while the A/C couldn't work well, kind of my fault I didn't see it while I was booking, Shanghai is hot in summer. The wifi connection is not always so good, what bugged me most was I have no cellphone signal upstairs in the dorm. Well besides this, it was good experience meeting people there.
